Boardroom musings: Sales Pipeline Haiku


This powerpoint slide shows
that your pipeline
stretches far
across what I had thought
was barren land.

Can it be that Q4 sales,
like the wind
will be limitless?

Or was this pipeline built
not with qualified sales prospects
but with the fragile paper
of business cards
submitted to you for a draw
for a free DVD player
at your last trade show?

I am tarred
in disappointment
Like an arctic tern
after the Exxon Valdez ran aground.
Who can clean my ruffled feathers?
